Your Health, At Home

Doctor on Duty™ is a leading provider of after hours doctor home visits to both residents of nursing homes and directly to patients in New South Wales and Queensland.

We provide diagnosis and, where appropriate, treatment and medication during the out-of-hours periods when general practices are closed.

 

Diagnosis, Treatment, Follow-up Care

Patients are first assessed by our trained triage staff, and then scheduled for visitation by the Doctor on Duty.

Doctor On Duty doctors can commence any treatment that is required at the time of their visit and can even give free starter packs of medications so you can begin treatment straight away.

We can them update your regular GP next morning of your symptoms and treatment to ensure quality and continuity of care,

Our Doctors are available:

Monday–Friday: 6 pm–8 am, calls taken from 4 pm

Saturday: 12 noon onwards, calls taken from 10 am

Sunday and Public Holidays: All day and night

Your Health Is Our Priority

It is important to note that if you have an emergency, it is best to dial 000 instead of waiting for a Doctor On Duty doctor to visit you at home. Your health is our priority, so our phone triage staff are professionally trained in assessing your symptoms and determining whether you should hang up immediately to call 000 or have one of our Doctors visit you at your own home.

The Doctor is On Their Way

Our aim is to attend patients as quickly as possible, and all cases are scheduled according to the patient’s or carer’s description of symptoms and consequent evaluation by our triage staff.

Our triage staff will let you know of the anticipated wait time for a Doctor on Duty™ to see you.

This estimate is based on your symptoms, other cases that may require more urgent attention, and the distance from the Doctor On Duty base to the patient’s or carer’s residence.

 

Hours of Operation

Our phone lines are staffed by fully trained triage staff and nurses and our call centre is open from 4 pm to 8 a.m. each weekday, from 10 a.m. on Saturday, and all day on weekends and public holidays. Our doctors commence their visits at 6 pm on weekdays and operate all night until 8 am each morning. Our doctors see patients from noon on Saturday, and all day and all night at weekends and public holidays.

 

Our Safety 

Our doctors are escorted by chaperones who travel with them everywhere and ensure they arrive at each call with the minimum of travel time and in safety.

Our doctors do not carry or provide drugs of addiction.
